As Valentine’s Day approaches, health experts are urging everyone to take care of their heart. Amada Roxana Gallardo, from Laredo Medical Center, emphasizes the importance of prioritizing heart health, as it is often overlooked when considering overall well-being.
Gallardo encourages individuals between the ages of 20 and 39 to find a primary care provider and schedule annual check-ups. Many people may assume they are healthy because of their age, but family history can play a significant role in their health. Regular check-ups can provide insights into any potential issues that may need further attention.
With the emphasis on heart health, the community is encouraged to take steps to ensure their cardiovascular well-being is a priority. The Laredo Medical Center offers programs that focus on heart health, providing resources and support for individuals looking to prioritize their cardiovascular well-being. For more information, individuals can contact the center at 956-796-5000.
Gallardo reminds us that taking care of our heart is not just about preventing diseases but also about living our best lives. By prioritizing our heart health, we can reduce our risk of heart disease and other related conditions, improve our quality of life and enjoy the love we give and receive on this special day.
